I’m running out to a dinner party but I just had to share a quick note.
My task was to provide an appetizer, and when you have little time, the easiest thing is to throw together a charcuterie plate. Who doesn’t love some nice meats and cheeses? (Vegetarians, fine. But the rest of us!)
It takes about 10 minutes at the store to pick out some nice salamis, and of course some prosciutto, and partner it with a few cheeses. In this case, I got a nice raclette, some sharp, grass-fed, cheddar, and a new cheese that is a mix of a brie and bleu cheese, which I can’t wait to try. I’ll let you know how it is.
The best part is that it always looks so impressive. Probably because it’s called charcuterie, and that just sounds fancy.
P.S. Don’t be jealous of my cheese knife!
